Pros: "The economy section of the upper deck of the A380 is great!"
Pros: "Scoot employees were really helpful, I missed my flight from Singapore to Kochi because by the time the passengers got off the flight and went through immigration in Singapore, the check in counter had closed, and there was no more flights available to Kochi until 2 days later. The employees made sure I boarded my flight and I came home to my sister’s wedding"
Cons: "Kayak doesn’t specify its two separate tickets for my destination to kochi from Honolulu, also they didn’t specify their would be a stop in Japan before the flight reached Singapore. The flights were delayed by a few minutes, which led to me stressing to make it on time to my flights, and I felt dehydrated and nauseous. Also the website doesn’t specify that we will have to purchase meals either before hand or on board, and that the airlines only took cash and no credit card. It was miserable, a whole 20+ hour flight with lots of stress of catching my flight, checking and the checking my baggage, and being hungry and thirsty because I didn’t carry enough cash on me."
Pros: "Boarding was good and the flight time was shorter than expected."
Cons: "My son did not like any of the meal selections between beef and fish. We asked for a ramen noodle cup instead that the flight crew denied they had, only after seeing them offer it to another family just seconds before. I was very disappointed!! I believe the flight attendant knew of my concerns because she started asking me if the service was ok. If your doing a good job, then you won’t have to ask."
Pros: "Spacious seats. Lovely food. Wonderful crew. Smooth flight."

Cons: "Nothing special."
Pros: "I’ve flown with a lot of airlines in every class. This was an economy class flight and still the food was better than I’ve received in business class on American. The seat was comfortable, the entertainment options varied and extensive and the cabin team were amazing. They clean the bathrooms between uses. Seriously how do other airlines still exist?"
Cons: "No free upgrade? ;-). But that’s unreasonable. I love this airline having not flown with them for 4 years I don’t understand why!"
Pros: "Service is the best among the airlines I’ve ever taken"
Cons: "Never ever get free upgrade"
Pros: "Excellent crew services"
Cons: "Entertainment system is rather tired for today’s standard for first tier airlines, in particular the headphone jacks which may not work from wear & tear. It’s a hit & miss whether the sound works or not. Obviously mine didn’t on one side this time. Very frustrating if you are on a long flight and there’s nothing you can do if the flight is full."
Pros: "Good crew service"
Cons: "poor boarding arrangement. passenger did not follow the boarding group arrangement boarding the plane."
Pros: "everything are okey"
Pros: "Very good service! Lots of flight attendants and they were kind the flight was long, but mostly smooth. The entertainment was good and there was a lot of it."

Pros: "Singapore airlines was awesome. I really enjoyed the hospitality of the cabin crew. They were very helpful and very eager to fill my needs. I will fly Singapore Airlines again without hesitation."
Cons: "Be more descriptive with which connecting flights we need to go on. We were not aware we we're supposed to get on Silk Air as one of our connecting flights, but we did eventually figure it out. It would really help to let us know your subsidiary companies."
Pros: "Overall, the Singapore Airlines team are always professional and friendly. They pay attention to every detail and try to make sure everyone is as comfortable as possible. One of my favorite things about this airline is that snack and juice are readily available throughout the entire flight without bothering the flight attendants, say in the middle of the night. This includes fresh fruit and juice, which in my book is a huge plus. Their bathrooms are always clean and include extra cosmetic amenities."
Cons: "Sometimes I feel like the cuisine is a bit too Asian and spicy. I had the fish curry and paid for it later in the flight in the bathroom, if you know what I mean. Also I was disappointed that I could not continue the same movie on this flight, as my previous flight, despite both flights being Singapore Air and using the KrisWorld entertainment system. I think the movies should be the same on each flight. However, the wide selection was great and I watched something else instead and really enjoyed the music selection."
Pros: "The flight was an hour shorter than i expected. The staff was around and attentive. I felt like i won the lottery with flights"
Cons: "Not one complaint"

Pros: "Emirates always is outstanding service and comfort even for a Economic ticket, but...."
Cons: "This time I had problems, I was in the seat 71 of A380 and I realized it is the worst seat to receive boarding service, I always was the last to receive food, so the fish option was “sold out” ... bad experience"
Pros: "Fast and easy"
Cons: "We didn't get to fly from SYDNEY to CHRISTCHURCH when we were supposed to!"
Pros: "I like the dealing of staff members"

Pros: "Ease of checkin"
Cons: "Delayed take off Delayed baggage retrieval’s"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "One carryon and no personal item - inconvenient and irritating! Security staff disposed of manicure scissors that met printed guidelines. Checked baggage was damaged, will avoid Emirates because of this. Staff, comfort, and food were very good, but will still select other airlines"
Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I needed to book for a hotel in manila and need to rebook my connecting flight from christchurch to queenstown. Supposedly, the airline company should offer a reimbursement for all my additional expenses. Vey inconvenient on my part."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Old plane with old seats."
Pros: "There really wasn't much to like, but I suppose the space in the seating was decent. We also did not have any delays in boarding and the flight itself was nice."
Cons: "The crew did not even ask customers if they needed water. The food selections were terrible, and then there was no selection at all by the time I had a chance to order my food. I didn't eat barely anything for the whole 12 hr flight. That is the worst situation I have ever been on when flying anywhere. So, yes, I found it horrible for the most part."
Cons: "Upon arrival at the final destination, I couldn’t find one of my 2 checked baggages, asked the emirates ground staff and i was told that they were unable to track the bag and not sure if it was loaded on to the aircraft at the origin airport or lost in transit. Lost my wedding suite and fiancé ‘s wedding gown and plenty other wedding things."

Pros: "Clean bathrooms, new plane"
Cons: "Families w/ babies overran the flight with incessant crying, talking, and moving around for the entire 14 hour trip!!! It made for a stressful and uncomfortable journey. Families with babies and young kids should be seated in their own section with some type of sound barrier. The flight attendants did nothing to control these families who took over sections of the plane as if it were their own personal space. I empathize, Im a mother. But have some common courtesy!"
Pros: "food, comfort, entertainment, staff - very good all round"
Cons: "toilets could have been a bit cleaner"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was a hour late, then we sat on the plane for another half hour because people were in the wrong seat"
Pros: "Everything I have come to expect on Emirates Economy, except for boarding and disembarking the aircraft involving bus journeys - and the condition of my suitcase on arrival."
Cons: "1. Use of buses on departure and arrival. The length of the bus journey from the terminal, in a vehicle with no seats, made me suspect we were going the whole way to Geneva by bus. 2. Don't know whether Fly Dubai or Emirates are to blame but my suitcase (a top grade modern Samsonite) was a mess by the time it reached Geneva, with rubber seal on one side of the zip peeled back and almost off. Why can't airlines and terminals ensure baggage is treated with care and respect?"
Cons: "crappy entertainment screens food was a bit blah (stale bread products, slimy fruit)"
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment selection on board, as well as the food. It was quite tasty and fresh."

Cons: "The water served is not sufficient I felt that it would be more better to serve water bottles."

Pros: "Inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Long layover"
Pros: "Crew very attentive and helpful"
Cons: "Boarding chaotic and unorganized. Cabin temperature = sauna for first 90 minutes. Everyone stressed. Babies crying. No water. No service. But all seat back screens lit and hot. Awful."
Pros: "Emirates is definitely comfier and more attentive than any American airline I've used."
Cons: "Not sure what happened on landing... We were told they couldn't connect the walkway so we would come down the stairs, but neglected to mention the ridiculously long (20-30 minutes) bus ride back to the actual terminal. There were no staff on the bus. I was pregnant and not offered a seat and came very close to passing out from the situation. I love emirates but the Dubai airport makes me reconsider flying with them again."
Cons: "The plane's interior needed a makeover, as is old"
Cons: "Had the weather in Wellington cooperated, I would have made it to the AKL-SYD leg and, most likely, would have enjoyed the travel experience. I plan to fly WLG-AKL tomorrow evening via another airline. Please rebook me onto Qantas tomorrow in evening."
Pros: "fast trip from japan all ontime quick boarding and unloading"
Cons: "the food main meal on an australian airline consisted of meal a) sushi etc b)Japanese style chicken and boiled rice (chicken thigh full of fat and sauce was greasy) could not eat c)pasta twists with dried up sauce (could not eat) very poor quality food will bring my own next time no plain option"

Cons: "Dinner and breakfast are not too good. We waited for long period of time for the luggages."

Pros: "WiFi on board"

Cons: "Delayed 2 hours with little info."
Pros: "IFE Snack - bacon quiche Service"
Cons: "Stink The usual cramped seating Long wait to deplane"
Cons: "Flight was an hour late leaving. This caused me to miss the connection in Sydney (even though its gate was still shown as open when we arrived. There were a quite a few passengers booked on the connecting flight but Qantas made no attempt to get us on board it and instead re-booked us for the next flight which was scheduled for 2.5 hours later but, in fact, left nearly 3.5 hours later. Breakfast consisted of rubber egg."
Pros: "Friendly crew Comfy space Reasonable food Boarding was easy"

Cons: "cabin VERY hot and cramped"
Pros: "IFE for such a short flight, headset free. Cabin crew were quite pleasant. B737-800 series (Next Gen.) is a nice plane."
Cons: "Cramped. Lunch was that revolting beef & kale pocket (again!). Highest a/f of Tiger, Virgin & QF, which is fine if it’s worth it, which it most definitely wasn’t."
Pros: "The staff did the best they could to accommodate everyone on a full flight in economy. The passenger in front of me had a failed entertainment system and the staff handled it very well."
Cons: "The leg room is obviously minimal in economy but compared to Singapore Airlines this was cramped and when the seat in front reclines it's almost impossible to find a comfortable position if you're over 5 foot 9! food was below par."
Cons: "Qantas food gets worse each flight."
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "I always enjoy the flights that have the in-seat entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Individual usb charge port and meal"
Pros: "Cleanliness and comfort of plane, professionalism and courtesy of staff. Quiet, dark cabin allowed for restful trip."
Cons: "Not enough legroom or seating area... Obviously you are downsizing, hoping that people will spend more to upgrade."
Pros: "The Staff were friendly during the whole flight. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. The breakfast meal was bad, especially putting in a hash brown that just gets soggy."

Cons: "My name is Parag Mokashi, Indian Passport No. Z1788332 had booked 2 return air tickets from Singapore to Auckland with details as follows: Qantas Airways Flight QF6 - Depart Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 01Dec16 (Thu) 23:50 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 10:50 Flight QF145 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 11:55 Arrive Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 02Dec16 (Fri) 17:10 Flight QF144 - Depart Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 13Dec16 (Tue) 08:35 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 10:15 Flight QF81 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 11:15 Arrive Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 13Dec16 (Tue) 16:30 I had booked these tickets online through CheapTickets.sg on 17th September 2016. While booking the tickets mine and my wife’s full details such as the Name, Nationality and Passport were given. In spite of this nowhere was it mentioned in the Quantas terms and conditions or any prompt/popup given while booking the tickets that Australian transit visa is required for Indians since the flight is via Australian city. I had booked the tickets well in advance and had enough time to get transit visa had there been any information about it mentioned. On 1st December 2016 when we went to the Changi airport we were not allowed to board the plane as we did not have the Australian transit visa. We were told by Quantas personnel at the airport to go to the Australian embassy in Singapore to get the transit visa and that we would get it within a day. Next day we went to the embassy and found that the Australian visa is done by VFS global at a different address. When went there they informed us that Australian visa takes minimum 5 days. I had all my hotel bookings in New Zealand already done hence I had no choice to take a direct Singapore Auckland flight via Singapore Airlines at a very high price on the next day. I also lost one day of my hotel booking in Auckland and had to forfeit the money. I and my wife had to go through the psychological trauma of being refused to board the plane, then the next day running around the Australian embassy / VFS global office for trying to get the Australian transit visa and facing the uncertainty regarding our new Zealand trip which was planned well in advance for our 25th wedding anniversary"
Pros: "The check in process was seamless - we did not queue at all The crew were great and gave us a bottle of bubbles when we landed The food was surprisingly good"

Cons: "Food was more wordt than in the past"
Pros: "The crew were really very good kind and could not have done more. I have crew members who are patients of mine and I know the stress they undergo and I wa actually very proud of the crew in my section of the aircraft"
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "- The kindness of the crew members - The food - The entertaining aboard"
Pros: "Fog prevented the plane we where to fly out on from landing however planes from other airlines where landing. This lead to a 6 hour delay."
Pros: "Crew was brilliant"
Pros: "Itinerary - hours of flight"
Cons: "Dinner could have been earlier"
Pros: "Quick, comfortable and easy"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit clunky"
Pros: "Good crew, comfort and timing"
Cons: "I got what I expected"
Pros: "The crew was really wonderful. They went the extra mile- pun intended- to make sure me and my family were comfortable. They were especially kind to my daughter. The plane was also great, very clean and well equipped. The 8 hours from Munich to JFK flew by very quickly."
Cons: "The food was sub-standard, though it was described accurately as a snack."
Pros: "Food was great and the crew were helpful."
Cons: "Seat could have been comfier!"
Pros: "Captain explained situation in person"

Pros: "Flight was delayed 2 hours no big deal o me I just slept on the bench it was good flight beat seat 42d"
Cons: "Had a connecting flight, both were with Lufthansa. There was an hour between the two flights. We went straight to security and immediately to the boarding gate but they had closed the gate and would not let us board, even though there was 15 minutes before the flight was due to leave. We were refused a refund and had to move flights to another airport 2 hours away and then had a 5 hour delay. We lost our car reservation as we would arrive too late to collect, we also couldn't check in to our hotel as planned as the hotel only allow check in until 11pm; we would have got there at 1am, so then had to book another hotel for the night. Airport staff at Lufthansa told us they could not help and told us to go away!"
Pros: "The ground staff in Heathrow was helpful. They happily swapped me onto an earlier flight to Munich after I spotted delays out of Munich, allowing me ample time to connect in Munich airport"
Cons: "Lufthansa's narrowbodies have one of the most uncomfortable seats in the sky. These slimline seats are built with a central beam running vertically along the midline of the seat, making it very uncomfortable with your spine."
Pros: "Staff tried hard to serve food"
Cons: "Very stinky person sitting in front of me and because there is no air jets to regulate had to breath 9 hours of stinky armpits Stayed 20 min on the plane or more waiting until gate would open."
Cons: "We were advised upon check in online that we could check in but if we needed additional carry on items (1 was free) we had to pay a secondary fee. When attempting to do that online we were unable to, even though it showed the price to do so online was cheaper than the price at the gate. They made us fully check these bags once we got there and we had to pay $40 instead of the 15 or so it stated online. We had to be shuttled to the aircraft and had to wait because the first bus was closed by the operator. We had to wait until the second round for the bus to come back. During the flight the pilot did not mention any turbulence however during the entirety of the flight, including leading up to the landing of the plane, we experienced extreme rocking of the plane back and forth ( I’m aware that this does occur during landings while loosing elevation but this was an extreme case of that) and caused my colleague to get motion sickness which neither of us ever get on flights. I am very dissatisfied with this flight and operations of the airline company."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled 1 hour before departure... customer service was appauling"
Pros: "I flew premium economy from Hong Kong to Frankfurt on the A340-600. The crew was excellent, attentive and friendly. They always have a great attitude and this has been consistent with my previous experiences with Lufthansa. The seat and meal were average for premium economy, but the crew more than made up for it."
Cons: "The seats were quite hard and lacking in padding in premium economy. The meal was average and nothing to bring home to."
Pros: "Nothing. Will never travel with airline in the future. Definitely will not recommend."
Cons: "Flights are delayed frequently which resulted in missing connection from Frankfurt to New York. On arrival, passengers are herded like animals from one point to the next with no explanation as to what resulted in the delay or given sufficient supplements for food etc."

Cons: "Attitude of staff very poor at a request for a drink of water"

Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Cons: "Check in 2x and security 2x Then rushing about"
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "Flight was not on time. They did not even make arrangements for connecting flights after knowing we would be late. Airhostness looked like they did not care about anyone in general got a negative vibe from her."
Pros: "Friendliness of staff Efficiency"
Cons: "Overall a very good service and no complaints but if In House entertainment was provided it would enhance the experience."
Cons: "Too close for getting on as 3 passport checks seems redundant. Munich has very little signage to direct anyone. We do not live there so do not know the language."
Pros: "Online check in worked well through app."
Cons: "If you leave something on the plane, don't expect for it to be handed in. My iPad disappeared on the flight. The woman at the boarding gate in Bham kept shouting at everyone, she was really rude, both flights were late taking off."
Pros: "Staff is super friendly and works hard to accommodate your needs. This flight also so happened to be empty so I got to lay down and nap haha."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything is great. I'm just writing these words so my review hits 50 characters."

Cons: "Everything.UEverything.United is suck"
Pros: "The crew did a great job. It was a little slow to board and disembark but again I'm pretty sure it was the people."
Cons: "One of the crew members at the airport said I had to check my bag but a woman with a bigger bag went on the flight with out having to check her bag. The people flying to Cairo are horrible. Rude, disgusting, disorganized. Took forever to board and disembark the aircraft. If I didn't have to fly to Cairo for work I would never take this flight again in my life. Not much you can do as an airliner though, maybe just warn the tourists about the flight."
Pros: "We had a very kind crew! We traveled with an infant and while boarding was a mess, the crew on board was kind and helpful and did all they could to make it a good experience."
Cons: "Air Canada Rouge operated our flight rather than Lufthansa or other similar airline. This meant that there were no tvs on board, which means the nearly 9 hour flight got very long. Boarding and check-in were also disorganized and many people from lower zones boarded before zone 1 and those with children, m among we had to stand on the ramp for a very long time holding ort baby."
Pros: "Service was excellent. Planes were very nice and food was very good for airplane food. I would highly recommend flying Lufthansa. Staff was excellent."
Cons: "Service was excellent. Planes were very nice and food was very good for airplane food. I would highly recommend flying Lufthansa. Staff was excellent."
Pros: "I like the service and food. 45"
Cons: "I like food and service and they had things that make it different. 48.."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. The food and drink service was excellent. The entertainment was varied. And the flight was smooth and on time which was greatly appreciated."
Cons: "As someone who does not particularly enjoy flying, Lufthansa made everything smooth and enjoyable. That being said, if I have to nitpick... the feet of the seats in front of me were staggered so that my foot space was cut in half by a bar. I had to have one foot on each side... sharing each one with the seatmates on either side of me. It made it so I didn't have a clear space to store my purse, which made the 10 hour flight just a little uncomfortable. Oh...and I could not find the proper jack for the headphones. It's as if the headphones provided were not meant for that entertainment system."
Pros: "Lufthansa delivers always a great service. Good timing, schedule and service!"
Cons: "flight cancellation was communicated late, with no specific plan how to get to the LAX flight. (The flight was also cancelled the next day; my wife was on that flight; I don't believe it was a technical reasons because of this) Resolving the issue wasn't smooth and needed my involvement to propose a working connection. I am Star Alliance gold member (through United) and this did finally give me a connection."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Cons: "Pilot strike caused much distress in Frankfort. The best that could be done was a layover extended by 5 hours and a diversion to Luxembourg. The final leg of the trip was further delayed an extra hour due to mechanical difficulties in Luxembourg."
Pros: "Great flight attendants"
Pros: "The problem was a family with 4 children who failed to parent their children which made this 7 hour flight a nightmare. Their children yelled, screamed and cried the entire flight and their parents did nothing. Their children laid in the center aisles, jumped up and down in the seats like a trampoline. They played with the trays like a toy repeatedly opening and closing them for fun. They tossed pillows at each other and the father handed them back to them to do it again and again. The parents didn't even seat their children in - the flight attendant had to do it. In our section there was no sleeping only total frustration. I love kids but sitting behind totally irresponsible parents made this return flight a nightmare while awake"
Cons: "Flight crew inability to handle unruly passengers"
Cons: "Because of a family illness I had to reschedule my flight 2 weeks before. Because the flight was booked through a secondary company, rebooking the outgoing flight ended upp: a) costing me as much as the whole original return flight; b) was no longer a 1 stop flight as I also had to stop in Frankfurt plus the company would not allow me to choose directly, I sent them details and then they booked what they could find; and c) I lost both the outgoing flight ( which was charged) and the return flight ( which was not changed) premium seat bookings both of which I had to pay for a second time. If I had booked directly with the airline this would have cost a transfer fee and I would not have lost the premium seat bookings. This was therefore a great expense and inconvenience. I will no longer book flights indirectly when using kayak. In future I will search using google flights and then go straight to the airline sites to book. Very disappointed. I never had this problem when booking with kayak before"
Cons: "Opodo messed up my booking. I reached the airport only to find out that the booking was cancelled by Opodo though I received an email from Opodo 24 hours before advising me to check in on the flight. As I was busy with some construction work at home I thought I would check in at the airport. Opodo advisors were not helpful on the phone and I ended up missing a family get together due to their incompatibility."
Pros: "I almost missed my next flight from Dublin to Chicago. There was not enough time between flights with current security measures. Your site should not have suggested those two flights so close."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "WiFi was not working. Flight was 2 hours delayed"
Cons: "plane was so old, the seat was worn out and terribly uncomfortable sitting on it for 8 hours. It also had about a 2 inch gap of missing seat cushion. plane was very dirty. service was not friendly."
Pros: "Nothing.....never made the flight....due to multiple flights delayed. My family and I had to be rerouted which caused us to miss our flight home from LAX."
Pros: "Pilots were very smooth with the controls, especially on landing unlike Ryanair!"
Pros: "They provided a lot of leg room and we arrived about an hour ahead of schedule."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Upon check in Dublin there was only one attendant at the check in counter in business class. Had seat assigned when I booked the flight and check in counter gave different seats so was not sitting beside my husband."
Pros: "I liked service given for special needs older senior"
Cons: "Landed early in LAX and then had to wai about 20 minutes to get a gate!!"
Pros: "The movies available, the plane was new"
Cons: "Due to a computer software malfunction our departure flight from ORD to Berlin was delayed 1.25 hours causing us to miss our connecting flight in Dublin. Very little updated information about our ETA was made available, the crew kept insisting that we were going to not miss our connection."
Pros: "the food"
Cons: "the service was disgraceful"
Pros: "Professional staff"
Cons: "Slow boarding"
Cons: "Buying via Kayak seemed to put us in second class status with Aer Lingus. We couldn’t get seats ahead, nor could we check in. We never received any notices from Kayak or Aer Lingus or Justfly who processed the sale."
Cons: "The entire crew needs to be a little attentive to their passengers you could visually see when they needed to assist a guest it was a bother to them."
Pros: "They were able to accommodate our seat requests at the gate. Like the ability to watch fairly new movies for free."
Cons: "Seat could use a little more cushion. Butt was sore at the end of the flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Not very happy with Aer Lingus’s ground crew or customer service or the way they run things. And Dublin airport is an unorganized mess. Probably will never fly with them again. Gave no concessions for canceling my flight out to Amsterdam."
Pros: "I enjoyed the crew you could tell they enjoyed working together the moved like a family..a unit almost."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't that great Sometimes I wish they would start from the back so people aren't getting hit while passing in the aisles."
Pros: "More room on the Airbus on Aer Lingus. Comfortable temperature in plane. Easy boarding."
Pros: "The actual flight"
Cons: "Food and comfort. Seats too small and no leg room."
Cons: "Dirty aircraft. Almost 1 hour delay."
Pros: "Girl sitting beside me!"
Cons: "Guy sitting behind me!"
Pros: "They were helpful on the ground, though some of the crew were cold on the plane, not unhelpful, but not helpful"
Cons: "The plane interior needed maintenance. The seat pocket in front of me was falling off, and things were tattered"
Pros: "Friendly crew, clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Luggage control was a bit off, passengers criss crossing trying to find space. I think the crew could have managed that better."
Pros: "A replacement plane did not take hours to get set."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1 1/2 hours as another plane (Titan) was used as the scheduled plane was not operational."
Pros: "I had much admiration for the 2 sets of parents of 2 screeching babies who were basking in total oblivion as to the aggravation their little bundles of joy were creating among the 100 other passengers. To be that insensitive to others is quite a feat. What could they have done, you ask? When my children got unruly on flights (very rarely) my wife whisked them off to the bathroom until they were calm. It's what responsible parents do. Not sit and smile at you. And when we reached Munich, we waited more than a half hour for luggage that came in spits and spurts... It was the perfect final flourish to a miserable 12 plus hours on your airline. I'm thrilled at the prospect of my return to LA next week and what surprises may be in store for me!"
Cons: "It was mercifully short..."
Pros: "Seats and service was excellent. Flight was on time and very organized."
Pros: "no delays, comfortable seats"
Cons: "The flight attendants went right past us never asking if we wanted anything. They served the people to our right and in front of us. Mystifying."
Pros: "Short flight so no food"
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent."
Pros: "Seats. Coffee."
Cons: "Only caffinated hot beverages. Herbal tea and non-dairy milk would be nice."
Pros: "The flight left almost on time which was good and landed a little over 20 minutes late which was ok."
Cons: "I had a window seat and felt very crammed. Also, we had to wait close to an hour for our luggage to come through. That was most annoying."
Cons: "Chaotic mele in the cabin as people used both entrances and met in the middle."
Pros: "On time. Reached early"
Cons: "No compliments of drinks"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for nearly 1.5 h for unclear reason, then boarding was prolonged as there was no bus to bring us to the aircraft. Once on the plane we were delayed further because we lost our takeoff spot"
Pros: "Seats comfortable even with my disabilities."
Cons: "Assistance seats all taken by able bodies. No room for disabled. Not enuf staff for volume of disabled rendering a delay to our flight E1 273."
Pros: "All was ok on trip. We didn't have food or drink."
Cons: "The trip while 10mins late leaving was ok. The big problem I felt was we were going to a funeral and 2 booked Monday and 3 booked Tuesday. We are 3 retired ladies and had to pay €276 each while the 2 men paid €150."
Cons: "no entertainment or food on this short flight so can't assess."
Cons: "There were absolutely no vegetarian meals. All flights should at least have a few extra just in case someone needs some. After I refused the meal, I didn't even get water or anything. I was given a nauseating wrap with tea towards the end of the flight. I'm not even sure how that was expected to be edible. Unbelievable, I will not be flying Aer Lingus again."
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Pros: "The in-flight experience and service."
Cons: "The fact that my luggage did not initially transfer from the first leg of my trip to the second leg of my trip. I received my luggage by the end of the day, but it was somewhat inconvenient to not have a lot of my personal effects for several hours."
Pros: "Ahead of time"
Pros: "Staff is great, attractive, and polite. Seats are comfortable. Everything was great."
Cons: "I'm not sure if it is the fault of Aer Lingus but the gate is not know until the last minute. Flight takes of at 8:50 and they don't post the gate until 8:00"
Pros: "They did a great job. Pillows and blankets were provided. We also got to have maps showing us where we were flying over and how long until we landed. Made the trip much easier. I've always appreciated the affordable flights Aer Lingus has offered travelers."
Pros: "USA immigration at Dublin aerport"
Cons: "Buying drinks st ridiculous high prices on the flight. Sests with restricted legroom because of entertainment boxes."
Pros: "Good amount of legroom, nice plane in good condition. Friendly professional staff."
Cons: "They have a rather meager selection of movies and TV to watch. My flight over to Europe was on British Air, and the comparison in this regard was stark. BA has tons of movies and TV to choose from, and lots of first-run. This had about 6 TV shows, 2 episodes each, and maybe 20 movies, ranging in age but mostly not very new. When you're on a daytime flight for 7 hours, this becomes something you care about."
Pros: "It's a real airline, with counters to check in. Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Not even water for free."
Pros: "Going through U S immigration and customs in Dublin."
Cons: "Food could be better. Seats could be more comfortable."
